1999 Ford Taurus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought used 3 1/2 years ago with 68k. Had to repair brakes twice, coolant reservoir, heater core, wheel bearings...but the car has never stranded anyone. Know going in that this car has a lot of design defects that you need to be aware of. Brakes, transmission, coolant system (including heater), are all going to fail. I do like the car though. Comfortable and safe, and it has turned me into a mechanic.


Best Features

Power seat, decent sound system, old school American ride.


Worst Features

This car is gone, so the suggestion is to Ford to smarten up. Build a low priced, good looking car that performs well and is reliable. Why is that so hard?

1999 Ford Taurus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan


Review

2nd owner of the car, bought off of a family member. She's got 186,000 on her, but it's one thing after another. First, the rack on the steering went. OK, then I blew a coolant line, which Ford says, requires me to replace ALL the coolant lines in the system. Definably going either Honda or Toyota. This is my 2nd car, and being a high school student, I can't afford the repairs. Would be a great car, if it wasn't for the mileage.


Best Features

Roomy! Very smooth ride on the freeway, even at speed.


Worst Features

Better materials. Period. It's that simple, just build the car to last longer.

1999 Ford Taurus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan


Review

My first car was a 90 Taurus and I beat that poor car to death. I was in a very bad accident in the Jeep that I owned before purchasing my current Taurus, so I wanted a car that was safe. I love the handling, the get up and go, and the car is incredibly comfy. However, the brakes are AWFUL, I have already had to replace them 2 times. Also, my car started chirping very loud, like a bird when it was cold (right after purchase). I was very upset thinking the guy sold me a ticking time bomb, but my Dad changed my transmission fluid on a whim and it has been quiet ever since. The previous owner used the wrong fluid. Overall I am very happy with my car. I got a very good deal on it.


Best Features

Comfy, great heat and a/c, roomy, get up and go. I think it's a great deal if the previous owner took care of it.


Worst Features

The brakes are garbage. I think the radio/ heat and a/c controls were not designed well.

1999 Ford Taurus Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased this new w/ incredible discounts, $8,000 off and 0.0% financing, no Japanese car can compare with that. The interior space is great, I'm 5'11", 270lbs and I have no problems getting in or out. I can not get into hardly any Japanese vehicle. I have not had to make any repairs on this vehicle and saved over $10,000 compared to comparable Japanese cars. I love my Taurus and will be giving it to my 16 year old son to drive because I know it is dependable.


Best Features

No mechanical problems after 70,000 miles, Leather interior, ABS brakes, stereo, tires, interior space, truck space, folding rear seats.


Worst Features

CD changer in the rear trunk is stupid, more powerful engine.

Review

The Taurus is a surprisingly good driving car. The ride is very comfortable and the handling is better than I expected. The A/C is excellent. The controls are logical and easy to use. I bought the car with 115m on it and expect over 200m with frequent oil changes and other scheduled maintenance. The car has been outstanding so far.


Best Features

Good A/C, ride quality, decent stereo.


Worst Features

None.
